Orla and Conor had organised a fantastic wedding yesterday at el Rancho del Ingles in Alhaurin and, with such a great venue, well out in the campo, we were able to party into the wee small hours and almost back out the other side again.
After a great meal accompanied by the beautiful Spanish guitar of Matt, and a series of heartfelt and hilarious speeches, people were ready for the first dance and once Damien Rice got going they were itching to join in.
I played song after song in different styles. Some of my favourite bits were the dancing to Riverdance and the Pogues(eat your heart out Stavros Flatley) and the whole crowd leaping around to the Saw Doctors I useta love her. Another great time was a sequence of singalongs that included the Green Fields of France and Brothers in Arms.
We had a good disco set, some classic dance with a highlight being Robert Miles Children and a load of great rock with highlights for me including The Killers Human and The Kings of Leon Use Somebody, some ska hits, soul, reggae, loads of party music and squeezed in two by Frank Sinatra and one by Andy Williams too. A brief description does not do justice to how much energy the music put into the party and how the guests sent that energy back with their brilliant dancing and singing. I reckon there will be a few sore heads this morning.
i hope i will get more opportunities to play at the venue. it was a great backdrop to a great, great night.
All in all, a fantastic night. with a bit of luck photos to follow soon.
